Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year. On a warm spring day in the Southwest, Bright Morning, a young Navajo, is taking her sheep to pasture. The sky is a deep blue against the red buttes of the canyon, and the fields and orchards promise a good growing season and a rich harvest.

Happy at the beauty around her, she gazes across the peaceful valley that her tribe has called home for hundreds of years. Then, lifting her eyes toward the aspen grove, she sees two men. Spanish slavers. They are riding straight toward her.

Synopsis:

When Bright Morning takes her sheep to pasture, she gazes across the beautiful valley that is the home of her Navaho tribe and sees Spanish slavers riding straight toward her.

Synopsis:

This beautifully written story of a young Navajo girl captured by Spanish slavers is a Newbery Honor Award Book and a "New York Times" Outstanding Book of the Year.
